There is only one consensus pick of peers and predecessors... There is only one Sam Bush. Bush was a three-time national champion in the junior division of the National Oldtime Fiddler’s Contest. He recorded an instrumental album, Poor Richard’s Almanac, as a high school senior and in the spring of 1970 attended the Fiddler's Convention in Union Grove, NC. There he heard the New Deal String Band, taking notice of their rock-inspired brand of progressive bluegrass. Roy Acuff offered him a spot in his band. Bush politely turned down the country titan. He admired the grace of Flatt & Scruggs, loved Bill Monroe - but he’d discovered electrified alternatives to tradition in the Osborne Brothers and manifest destiny in The Dillards. Later in his career, Bush began playing mandolin after recruiting guitarist Tony Rice to the fold. Bush and his Alliance mates formed the New Grass Revival, issuing the band’s debut, New Grass Revival. The Americana Music Association awarded Bush the Lifetime Achievement Award for Instrumentalist and his performances are annual highlights of the festival circuit. Punch Brothers, Steep Canyon Rangers, and Greensky Bluegrass are just a few present-day bluegrass vanguards among so many musicians he’s influenced.

ONE NIGHT IN MEMPHIS
THE NUMBER ONE TRIBUTE TO PRESLEY, PERKINS, LEWIS, & CASH
Thursday, April 2nd
“One Night in Memphis” features over 90 minutes of pure rockabilly, country, gospel and rock and roll in a very authentic and energetic presentation featuring nationally known talent. The show recreates that magical night of December 4th, 1956 when Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash found themselves jamming at Sam Phillip’s Sun Studios in Memphis, TN. Little did they know that their jam session was being recorded and preserved for all time, representing all the performers in their prime and the very best music of that time. “One Night in Memphis” is created and directed by John Mueller from the highly acclaimed show “Winter Dance Party” and has met with the same accolades and audience standing ovations. The San Francisco Examiner raves, “An Amazing Show!”
